OpenStack charms are being re-promulgated, how this affects you.

Hi all,

Summary: In order to enable the OpenStack Charmers to better respond to
merge requests and iterate on the OpenStack charms, all OpenStack charms
will be re-promulgated from ~charmers to ~openstack-charmers. THIS WILL BE
A PROBLEM for anyone who is referencing an openstack charm, listed below,
with the full Launchpad branch name (ie:
lp:~charmers/charms/precise/<charm>/trunk). To avoid this issue in the
future please make sure you are at least using lp:charms/<charm> if not a
fully qualified charm store url, cs:precise/<charm>.

Charms Affected:

ceilometer
ceilometer-agent
ceph
ceph-osd
ceph-radosgw
cinder
glance
hacluster
heat
keystone
nova-cloud-controller
nova-compute
nova-compute
nova-volume
openstack-dashboard
quantum-gateway
swift-proxy
swift-storage

While this change won't break anyone who is referencing charm store URLs
(ie: cs:precise/<charm> or lp:charms/<charm>) this may break older bundles
or scripts which do not use the canonical naming scheme for charm store
charms.

In order facilitate a move these will be re-promulgated tonight but the
original ~charmers branches of each will remain for one week, finally being
removed on March 1st. Please note that these ~charmers branches will not be
updated and are merely left to allow time to update scripts.

I will be going through each bundle in the charm store and pinging bundle
authors directly if they need to update their bundles to new URLs. For
those who don't have bundles published in the charm store which utilize the
OpenStack charms, please review and update as necessary.

For those with merge proposals against the current openstack-charms I will
be resubmitting these against ~openstack-charmers. If I miss any, my
apologies, you simply need to resubmit and target against the new branch.

Finally, if you have any questions about this migration please feel free to
contact me directly or ping me on IRC (marcoceppi). I'll be happy to
explain further this process and it's potential impact on how you use the
OpenStack charms. I tried to include all the mailing lists this would
pertain to without dumping to too many lists. I also want to re-iterate
that unless you're using very specific (and, arguably the proper way) to
reference charms this change will be transparent to you.

Thanks,
Marco Ceppi
On behalf of ~charmers
